Costs

In most instances a victim has a right to get some out-of-pocket expenses for doctors, medicines and physical therapy reimbursed from the relevant insurer, employer or Icelandic Health Insurance..

In most instances Fortis pays the expenses because of medical certificates or other documents, as relevant, required because of the accident.

A victim does therefore not have to pay any amount at the beginning of a case, because of either the acquisition of documents or legal assistance.

Legal fees are usually paid after completing settlement of compensation.

In many instances the relevant insurer pays most of the victim’s legal fees.
